kia sidewinder 450

Amazing to think that the minds behind the Kia Sephia came up with this one. The Kia Sidewinder, is one of the design concept entries for the L.A. Auto Show's "L.A. Adventure" design competition that we posted about in November. The design is a two-seater that's also a pretty funky hybrid: a compressed natural gas turbine is combined with in-wheel electric motors for some futuristic power plant action.

So why are we posting again? Well, there's a report from Auto Express in the U.K. that Kia has actual plans to put this baby (with a more conventional range of engine options) into production as a roadster on a Kia Rio platform. We'll just wait and see what the Kia folks have to say at the L.A. Show in January - stay tuned!
